Ray Ban RB3183 Review
Ray Ban Sunglasses have always been an icon of classic American cool, being the top choice of both artists and celebrities worldwide to reflect individuality and spontaneity. Continuing the Ray Ban tradition of legendary style, the RB3183 Top Bar doesn’t disappoint with its slick, contemporary design. Classified for men, it’s also stylish and good enough for the ladies!
Simple and sporty, the rectangular sunglasses feature a lightweight semi-rimless metal frame and the classic Ray-Ban logo printed on the temples. Nose pads are durable, soft and adjustable along with ear bars that wrap around and down the ears for maximum comfort, no matter where you wear these sunglasses. Your eyes are protected by thick, quality UV protective lenses that feature a wide range of tints and gradients to polarized ones. The lens design also curves around the sides so that sunlight is effectively blocked.
However, with everything seemingly going well for the Ray Ban RB3183 Top Bar, a few minor nitpicks have managed to crop up like the noticeable screws on the nose attachment. It’s glaringly obvious as you wear it, showing up in your field of vision even as you glance left and right. While for some it’s just a matter of adjustment, it may be an annoyance to others. The security of the lens-frame attachment may also be a concern due to its rimless bottom-half and reports about the protective coating on the ear bars wearing off too quickly have also come up. Other users have also reported that the protective ear covers may not be as durable as the rest of the sunglasses. They may either come off or start to tear and disintegrate after awhile.
As for the fit, it looks great on anyone, from wide to narrow faces although it may not be for larger heads as it might be a little too tight.
All in all, the Ray Ban RB3183 Top Bar is a great pair of sunglasses to have. Though it comes at the expected premium, the investment is still well worth its price considering the Ray Ban quality, signature style, function and durability.
